Founded in 2001, the INSTITUTE OF DOCUMENTARY FILM (IDF) is a non-profit training and networking centre based in Prague, Czech Republic, focused on the support of East European documentary films and their wider promotion. Our activities support filmmakers through all stages of completion – development, funding, production, post-production, and distribution. We aim at individual filmmakers (tailored consultations), groups of carefully selected professionals with projects or films (Ex Oriente Film, East European Forum, East Silver, Doc Launch, etc.), broader professional community (East Doc Platform), as well as the general public (portal www.DOKweb.net). We closely work with key int. festivals, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, markets, or training initiatives and serve as the GATEWAY TO EAST EUROPEAN DOCUMENTARY FILM.
Salina and Albert are fairly normal teenagers living in Berlin. But what makes them different is their dreams. How can you dream of the future if you don´t even know what tomorrow will bring?
Seven years ago the family S. escaped from the war in their country of Chechnia to come to Germany. Seven years of uncertainty, seven years hoping to be accepted as political refugees and receive permission to stay.
Over two years, this film follows the life of the family and shows what it means to fill your days with nothing but waiting, as they struggle to not loose hope between metropolitain life and muslim religion, between great dreams and tough reality.
